Quick Links

 
 

Please read the following items carefully: 

  • Applicants are invited to complete the Supplemental Application after receipt of the AMCAS application has been acknowledged with an invitation to access the "Applicant Gateway" on WebAdMIT.
  • Applicants who experience difficulty accessing the Supplemental Application, or who have problems with submitting their fees should call WebAdMIT Support at 617-612-2881.
  • The Einstein AMCAS deadline is October 15. The Supplemental Application and fee, and supporting documentation must be received by December 1.  Completion of the Supplemental Application does not mean that the entire application is complete.  The application is complete only when MCAT scores have been received, in addition to evaluations and Supplemental Application and fee. AMCAS sends reminders to applicants if letters are not received.  Applicants are responsible for communicating with AMCAS in a timely manner, otherwise the application will be delayed or not reviewed.  
  • Applicants who are international students, and applicants who have completed two prior applications are ineligible to apply.
  • Prior to submitting a  Supplemental Application, all applicants should read and consider the Class Profile and the Technical Standards links found on the admissions website. 
  • Please be certain that your application has been completed properly by checking: Completion Checklist  
  • When the application is complete, notification will be made via e-mail.

There are two questions on the Supplemental Application that require clarification. These are: "I plan to take off this year while I make application to medical school," and "I have not completed the competencies."

Regarding the first question, if you are not a matriculating student anywhere this year, please check the box and describe your activities. Also, if you are or were a graduate student and took time off in between undergraduate and graduate school, please describe your activities during that period.

As to the second question, if you are taking pre-medical course work either this fall, spring, or next summer, please check the box and indicate the courses. Course work taken this year is allowable, and your application will be considered prior to its completion.

Applicants who apply to the M.D./Ph.D. program (MSTP) who decide afterward that they would prefer the M.D. program only, must notify both the M.D. admissions office and the M.D./Ph.D. office, in writing. They then must be interviewed and evaluated by the M.D. admissions committee. This requirement applies also to accepted M.D./Ph. D. applicants.   

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR THE 2019- 2020 ACADEMIC YEAR:  The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is transitioning from its prior relationship with Yeshiva University to an independent degree-granting institution.  As part of this transition, Einstein has applied to the U.S. government for permission to sponsor student visas. Unfortunately, at this time, the application is still pending and we are not yet able to sponsor student visas. Therefore, we will be unable to accept applications from, or admit international students this year.  It is our hope that we will be able to consider international applications in the future.  If so, the instructions below will apply. 

Fee Waiver

Applicants may be eligible for an application fee waiver from AMCAS and for a fee reduction for the MCATs.

Please refer to: AAMC.org. Only applicants who have been granted a fee waiver (FAP) by AMCAS will be granted a Supplemental Application fee waiver by Einstein.


 

Application Fee

The Supplemental Application fee is $120.00 and will be collected via the Applicant Gateway on WebAdMIT, immediately following the completion of the Supplemental Application. Please note that AMEX is not accepted by TouchNet. Applicants who have a problem remitting the fee should contact WebAdMIT at 617-612-2881.
